logging dpkg/dselect activity [was Re: Mirrors et al. ]

Until Ian has the spare time to include activity logging in
dpkg/dselect, I do the following:

I use dselect to decide which packages I want to install remove.

To do the actual installation and removal from the command line using
something like
	dpgk -iGROEB development/binary non-free/binary contrib/binary \ 
	| tee /root/update.log
	dpkg --purge --pending

To skip the trivial info in my update.log file, I use
	egrep -v 'deselected|already installed' /root/update.log

(All this comes with the usual warning: Typos not excluded... :-) )
